At the Great Gator Friday night, the 4x8 relay and open 800 were run with a 2-turn stagger. We haven't seen that this year. The athletes were told it would be good practice for Regionals coming up. Was there a rule change from a 1-turn stagger this year? Can anyone comment on this?

@GE79 I thought it was changed last year to the 1 turn stagger.

You are correct. That is why we are trying to understand why it was decided at this meet to do a two-turn stagger.

@GE79 Staggers are a Games Committee/Meet Director decision, so if that meet ran a 2 turn stagger, then the meet director must think we still use the 2 turn stagger in the post-season.

The one that people should be practicing and that we don't see much during the season is the 3-turn stagger for the 4x400. Have to admit, we haven't done it at our home meets, either, except for Sundown last week.
